Girl in the Walls 

By A.J. Gnuse 

"Gnuse is a writer of vision, who builds up his novel like the most exquisite music box. It plays out perfectly, and will leave you entranced long after its covers are closed."--Ali Shaw, author of The Trees

Eventually, every hidden thing is found.

Elise knows every inch of the house. She knows which boards will creak. She knows where the gaps are in the walls. She knows which parts can take her in, hide her away. It's home, after all. The home her parents made for her, before they were taken from her in a car crash. And home is where you stay, no matter what.

Eddie is a teenager trying to forget about the girl he sometimes sees out of the corner of his eye. But when his hotheaded older brother senses her, too, they are faced with the question of how to get rid of someone they aren't sure even exists. And as they try to cast her out, they unwittingly bring an unexpected and far more real threat to their doorstep.

Written with grace and enormous heart, Girl in the Walls is a novel about carrying on through grief, forging unconventional friendships, and realizing, little by little, that we don't need to fear what we do not understand.

 

 

Pride of Eden 

by Taylor Brown

Pride of Eden is intimate in detail and thematically epic. Beautifully written and hard to put down, this book fairly bursts with a sense of place so rich you feel as if you are stepping into this lush world and characters--including the animals--with whom you don't want to stop spending time. Taylor Brown has firmly established himself as one of our finest novelists. --Silas House, author of Southernmost

Retired racehorse jockey and Vietnam veteran Anse Caulfield rescues exotic big cats, elephants, and other creatures for Little Eden, a wildlife sanctuary near the abandoned ruins of a failed development on the Georgia coast. But when Anse's prized lion escapes, he becomes obsessed with replacing her--even if the means of rescue aren't exactly legal.

From the rhino wars of Africa to the battle for the Baghdad Zoo, from the edges of the Okefenokee Swamp to a remote private island off the Georgia coast, Anse and his team of exiles battle an underworld of smugglers, gamblers, breeders, trophy hunters, and others who exploit exotic game.
